Default How normal are Hot Pixels

First of all, thanks to all of you users who've been invaluable to this nubie in his first digital camera purchase. Second, this forum gave me the idea to test my Olympus for hot pixels and to my surprise I found 8 in two clusters using the dead pixel software. I can see one of these clusters on photos taken in low light, but it dissappears in lighter photos. My question is how normal it is to have hot pixels on a new camera, and whether it's worth returning the camera? What are the chances that any camera I got in exchange would be at least as bad. I am an amature photographer, mostly taking photos of my kids. Thanks again to everyone! -malcolm
